Collective Visions

Curated by Thomas-Bernard Kenniff, Giancarlo Mangone, Suresh Perera and Johan Voordouw

09 April – 14 April 2015

Collective Visions is an exhibition of design work by fourth-year architecture students enrolled in the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.  Combining creative research and advanced design exploration, the work is the culmination of the Bachelor of Architectural Studies and illustrates the very best of craft and technique in drawing, rendering and model-making.  Students will be presenting design projects responding to one of four specific studio briefs: indeterminacy, strangeness and the public realm around Chaudière Falls; performance space in Old Montréal; a new ecological vision for Kanata; and a New Market in the Bayview/Lebreton Flats area of Ottawa.  Together, these projects address questions both central to the discipline of architecture as well as complex cross-disciplinary ones.  By exploring the relationship between architecture and current social,  cultural, political and ecological concerns, the works present the students’ visions of the role architecture plays in the continuing transformation of our urban environment; visions that are necessarily collective.
